I was a kid at the NY state fair, mid 70's, and I was looking at these rock & roll pins a vendor was selling. I didn't have any intention on buying one, just killing time and looking at them. The vender pulls one off the rack and pins it to me; it's a picture of Jerry's smiling face. He says something to the effect of "you have to have this one, he's the greatest." I walked around all day with it, and when I got home I put it away. Years later "I got it" and then realized that those many years ago I had met a kind deadhead who was probably grinning over the fact that a little kid with straight parents was walking around with Jerry on his jacket.
